Abstract: In the basin of the Amur River at the territory of Russia, in the northern regions of China and Korea the osteal-articulate disease of people and animals, well known as Kashin-Beck disease is spread. About 20 hypotheses had been suggested for explaining the disease causes. some of them are briefly introduced. The hydrogeochemical researches in Transbaikalia. Russia, showed that natural water of the endemic areas have several features in chemical composition.some of them are considered by existing hypotheses as the causes of the disease.others do not concern the possible etiologic factors of the disease for the present. The author examines these features respectively.
